Top picks for 2017

Our superstar team here at The Scotch Whisky Experience have been working hard throughout the year to create original and fun posts for our blog, and we’ve loved their contributions! From exploring Scotland to musings on whisky and innovative food matches, there’s been something for everyone.

Here are some of our most-read blogs from 2017 that you may have missed…

Exploring Orkney

When Deputy General Manager Angela Dineen visited the island of Orkney, we jumped at the chance for her to talk us through what to see and where to go on this beautiful northern Scottish island, including its two whisky distilleries, Scapa and Highland Park. Read on for what she got up to…

Exploring Islay, the whisky Isle

The whisky festival of Feis Isle is held every spring on the island of Islay, but what else can you get up to for the rest of the year? Retail Manager Paula Arthur knows the island inside out from many a whisky-themed adventure there, and tells us all about what to see and do when you visit.

Matching whisky with sweetshop chocolate

Now this was a post we definitely loved putting together! Visitor Assistant Heather Newlands  is a pro at food and whisky-matching, and when she suggested a blog post on how to match some classic Scotch whiskies with cornershop chocolate, we couldn’t wait to see what she’d matched. Have a read and see if you agree!

A Personal Whisky Collection

Now he may not have a collection quite as extensive as that of Claive Vidiz, but Visitor Experience Manager Jim Allan definitely knows his stuff when it comes to starting a whisky collection of your own. Read on for his top tips, and some of the favourite bottles in his collection.

Whisky Festivals to visit across the world

Whisky Festivals to visit

Scotland may be the home of whisky (what can we say, we’re definitely biased!), but its got a global following, with events and celebrations of the amber nectar taking place across the world. But which ones should you visit? Take a look at our list of whisky festivals for some pointers on whisky festivals to go to, wherever you are on the planet.

Visiting Glenkinchie Distillery

When a few from our lucky team took a trip to Glenkinchie Distillery (or the ‘Edinburgh malt’ as it’s often known), we couldn’t resist asking Bar Specialist Ian Clement to give us a write-up on what you can expect on a distillery tour there. Just 45 minutes outside of Edinburgh, it’s always worth a trip if you want to visit a working Scotch whisky distillery.
